More women needed on TV and in media, says Alice Arnold


There should be more effort to get women on TV and in the media, says the former BBC Radio Four announcer and newsreader Alice Arnold.

The keen golfer is used to being a woman in a man's world, and she called for "equal representation of women".

She said a "little bit" has been done, but it was not enough, adding: "I want change and I want it now - so no more excuses."
